In brief: Yes

"strawberry" birthmarks are actually arteriovenous malformations or simply venous malformations.
Some of these have fairly large veins under them. It wouls be best to see a physican that is well versed in looking at this type of problem.

In brief: Yes.

Strawberry hemangiomas are made of blood vessels, so bleeding is not a good thing.
Lasers are available which shrink down hemangiomas. See a dermatologist who has experience with vascular lasers.
